Mayweather VS Pacquiao: Pacquiao 'ran away from home to live on the streets because his father ate his dog'

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines poses during a fan rally at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada April 28, 2015.

According to Roach, times were so hard for poverty-stricken Pacquiao family in the Philippines that his father cooked the dog for food, the Independent reported on Wednesday.
Pacquiao was so devastated by this he went to live on the streets, before turning professional just two years later aged 14.

"The Philippines is a poor place, there's no welfare, no health system and if you don't have a job or money then you do anything to survive,” revealed Roach.
"Manny ran away from home after his father ate his dog," Roach revealed.
"He lived on the street, where he bought doughnuts at a doughnut store and then sold each one for a nickel more to survive.
